Additional outreach opportunities will occur in August, September, and November. Please check back for additional information as the schedule is finalized.
The Historic Firestone Neighborhood Plan is the guiding document for elected officials to depend on for making quality decisions in regard to the development of programs and projects within the Historic Firestone Neighborhood along with the funding for such efforts. The plan provides an evaluation of the conditions and uniqueness of the original Town site and presents goals and policies to guide investment and program development decisions. It is intended to assist in the creation of appropriate commercial uses and reduction of vacancy by capitalizing on the strengths and uniqueness of the area and to enhance the conditions of the residential community. The ultimate goal is to ensure a vibrant, lively, safe, well-kept, clean and inclusive environment for both residents and commercial property owners.
The Town of Firestone received a DOLA REDI Grant in 2020 to assist in funding the plan preparation and executed a contract with the project consultants in May of 2021.
